The Archives of the Archdiocese of Seattle serve the information needs of the Church and civil community by preserving and providing appropriate access to records documenting the history of the Catholic Church in Western Washington. Archival materials are preserved to memorialize the corporate and ministerial activities -- enabling continuity in decision making, supporting programs, and facilitating historical research. They also oversee the management of current diocesan records and assist parishes and schools in the administration of their own records programs.
Digitization of this videotape material has been made possible, in part, by a grant from 4Culture.
